We loved tagging along with Daniel Klein of The Perennial Plate (via the wonders of free internet video) as he road-tripped around Minnesota over the past year, highlighting the very best of local, sustainable food statewide -- from foraging for morels to tapping maple trees to hunting squirrels (no joke). Basically, we want to be Daniel, but we'll settle for watching all his adventures instead (see the video above and you'll get what we mean).

Now Daniel's sights are set on the greater U.S. and, starting next week, we're thrilled to be posting a Perennial Plate recipe and episode (shot and edited from the road) every week, following their journey and vicariously eating, drinking, exploring -- and cooking! -- with Daniel and the characters he meets along the way.

One more thing: he wants our help -- if you have tips on people doing amazing things with food (a seed saver? a food truck? an urban gardener?) along his route, please let him know here. And knowing you guys, you'll probably want to host an event with Perennial Plate. That can be arranged, here.

Perennial Plate: Where are we going?

I do hope he can stop by Brattleboro VT and Amherst MA! Will have many suggestions given the particular season! What a great plan.

And the squirrels live on. I love it! :) Maybe Daniel and Mirra could make a scone/gas pit stop at the Pound Ridge SconeOco on their way down to NYC....

i've been enjoying perennial plate's videos and so happy to be able to follow the new adventures here. one-stop food gawking! i can hardly believe how he does what he does and can't wait for the road trip!

I nominated thirschfield a while back; even though IN isn't on the posted route, I think a visit to Tom's farm would be a perfect way for Daniel and Mirra to end their trip.

Ohhhh, this makes me miss Minnesota and all the amazing farmers, fisherfolks, and cooks I know there. Well, I'm off to the website to suggest the cool food people I've met out here in New England - and also to watch all these episodes! So cool.

Fantastic. I've loved Daniel's work for so long and hope he'll stop for a Food52 welcome in the Mid-Atlantic.

How COOL. So many, many things for him to do here in the Mid-Atlantic! Crabbing, Rockfishing, the new Oyster Farms....we'll set him up!
